                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail and well met, warriors of Erinika!

I felt a DM column was in order, especially when you consider the former throne-
holder failed to take the time to write one himself.  Shame on you, Prizmatyk Wahl!
I guess you deserved to lose, if for no other reason than extreme laziness.  :)
Anyway, I have the floor, so to speak, so I will do my duty.

I have noticed that we have had a drastic drop in our participation since the Turf
War ended.  This is natural, and not unexpected, yet the difference is remarkable.
Doesn't anyone have warriors worth running in this arena?  Must I pound on the
Prizmatyk Wahls of Erinika until I earn my invite?  Point is, let's see a little more
participation, eh?

Kasenko

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ERINIKA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Look out below!  SATAN'S VOMIT is on the 
way down, falling to 17th from 5th with a 0-1-0!  Ha ha ha ha!  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see VANISH win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
VANISH beat KANTRYP and KANTRYP lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  PRIZMATYK 
WAHL challenged ERINIKA's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the 
spice of life, ERINIKA may be getting bland, as KASENKO stays top dog in the city.  
I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know 
what's new, don't you, ERINIKA?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  ERINIKA, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
WORLDWIDE GORE the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And 
who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It 
was WAY TO GO! II.  Ha ha ha ha!  PRIZMATYK WAHL was challenged more times this turn 
than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I notice 
CONUNDRUM challenging down 18 points to fight ASPHYXIATE, MYSTERIOUS doubtless has 
some rotten excuse for such an insult to honor.  And golly gee, CONUNDRUM beat 
ASPHYXIATE.  Aren't we all surprised and impressed?  I guess I can give a little 
credit to SCRODS of DRAKE'S TELEVISION for challenging up by 19 to FRISIAN.  SCRODS 
lost to get 37 points of recognition.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of ERINIKA.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of 
this place-- Snide Clemens

                   MONGO'S MARDI GRAS MADNESS DUELMASTERS AUCTION

     Mongo, aka Matt McIntosh and ex-Warden of the Dark Circle, is auctioning off his
entire collection of Duelmasters warriors and stables.  Don't miss out on this chance
to own some fantastic warriors!  There are ADM warriors available in every class from
Primus to Freshmen, as well as over a dozen Basic stables.
     Does a Slasher with +4 attack, +4 decisiveness, +3 initiative and +2 riposte
sound good?  How about a Lunger who received the benefit of a TC prize, has TVed
three times after graduating--and still hasn't maxed out his skills!?  How about a
Striker in the Freshmen class who has decisiveness for a favorite learn and the MAUL
for a favorite weapon!?
     Or perhaps you prefer playing in Basic.  Then how does a stable with four Adept
class warriors who have a combined record of 41-19-9 sound?  Or maybe a stable with
three 21-Will warriors?  Or perhaps a stable with four Initiates and a Rookie who
have a combined record of 23-6-1?
     The quality of the lots is excellent.  All you need to view and bid on the lots
is go to:
          http://members.aol.com/jvmerlino/mardigras.html
     If you want to be on the mailing list to receive regular updates on the auction,
just send an e-mail to JVMerlino@aol.com. Merlin, aka John Merlino and also an ex-
Warden of the Dark Circle, will be running this auction for me.  I just moved to New
Orleans and am likely currently stumbling around the French Quarter...because it's
Mardi Gras!  So I have named my auction in honor of this occasion.
     The auction will start on Saturday, March 13th, 2004, and will continue for
several weeks.  But you should get your bids in early if you want your best chance at
owning any of these fantastic warriors and stables.
     Many thanks to all for your interest and your bids,

Mongo

Style Masters Symposium
Hosted by Hammer

     The years have slipped by and many DM Managers have come and gone since the last
Hammer's Handbook was compiled and printed.
     There is now a stirring within me to begin writing and editing yet another
Handbook with a distribution date sometime in 2005.
     This Handbook will be made available via Email with a possibility of burning the
info to a CD for distribution.
     Special arrangements will be made to provide the information via printed page to
those contributors who are serving sentences behind bars.
     The working title of this new Handbook is "Style Masters Symposium Hosted by
Hammer".
     Distribution of this Handbook is projected to be MAINLY for those DM Managers
who contribute information/articles to Hammer by June 2004.
     Informative and entertaining articles should focus on insights regarding Any or
All 10 Style Masters for both the Basic and ADM arenas as well as Tourney
competition.
     Articles focusing on Weapons/Armor are also encouraged for inclusion.
     Whether you are a Newbie Manager without a clue or a Jaded Veteran; everyone has
discovered something about this gaming experience that is both Insightful and
Entertaining.
     Email Your Articles to HammerDM@fastermail.com or send them via Diplo to either
Flower Hammerz (372) in DM 28 or Casino Hammerz (576) in DM 33.
     Length and Content of the Style Masters Symposium Hosted by Hammer will be
Determined by the Quality and Quantity of Contributors Combined with the Literary
Efforts of Hammer who is currently overseas for an indefinite period of time.
     Articles Contributed for this Project should be of Sufficient Length and Content
to Warrant being Included to Receive the Finished Document when Hammer has completed
this literary work to His satisfaction.
     Managers contributing articles are also requested to include a DM Bio of
Themselves along with any Notable Successes and/or Failures during Their DM Career in
Basic, ADM and/or Tourney Play.
     A listing of Active Stables would also be Helpful for Anyone Seeking to Reply to

Contributors via Diplo, Email or Snailmail.
     May Your Blades Be Sharp And Your Wits Sharper!
